The new curated collection features conversational one-of-a-kind pieces created by Kenyan artisans, and can be purchased exclusively at shopsoko.com.
Soko (formerly SasaAfrica) employs the use of an open source mobile application that sustainably supports and enriches the work of Kenyan artists. This revolutionary technology provides consumers with access to unique jewelry designs never before available on the international market.
Gwendolyn Floyd, co-founder of Soko explains “At Soko we believe that the global marketplace should be accessible to all artisans in the digital age. Designers and artisans everywhere deserve equitable access to the means to support their craft and build their businesses on the global stage, while consumers consistently demand access to world goods – whether their goal is to support developing economies and traditional craftsmanship or enjoy broader access to fashionable and unique design.”
Soko collections feature a selection of some of the best pieces from the Soko marketplace such as necklaces, braces and earring and is aimed at shoppers who prefer a more curated shopping experience.
